Our licence

The AVLA licence encompasses an immense repertoire. Thousands of the titles we represent are shown every year on UK and foreign TV channels, both free-to-air and pay TV networks.

However, for the sake of clarity, our licence does not cover all programmes shown on every TV channel. For instance, we might not represent the rights-holders of a film produced in Thailand. Likewise, our licence typically does not cover other contents, such as sports, news and reporting of current affairs, weather forecasts and some broadcaster’s productions.

Moreover, the AVLA licence only covers audiovisual works broadcast on TV channels. Even for works in our repertoire, the licence does not authorize other uses, such as showing films, series or other TV shows at establishments on a pay-per-view, subscription VOD or other basis.
